The embattled Democratic Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax was hit with further accusations of sexual assault by a second woman on Friday.
The accusations were made in statement from Meredith Watson, who says Fairfax raped her when they were students at Duke University.
“We serve as counsel for Meredith Watson, who was raped by Justin Fairfax in 2000, while they were both students at Duke University,” read the statement from Watson’s lawyer. “Mr. Fairfax’s attack was premeditated and aggressive. The two were friends but never dated or had any romantic relationship.”
The statement said that Watson’s account was corroborated by a “series of emails and Facebook messages” that has been obtained by her lawyer.
“Ms. Watson was upset to learn that Mr. Fairfax raped at least one other woman after he attacked her,” the statement continued. “The details of Ms. Watson’s attack are similar to those described by Dr. Vanessa Tyson.”
“At this time, Ms. Watson is reluctantly coming forward out of a strong sense of civic duty and her belief that those seeking or serving in public office should be of the highest character. She has no interest in becoming a media personality or reliving the trauma that has greatly affected her life. Similarly, she is not seeking any financial damages.
The statement went on to call for the resignation of Fairfax.
Fairfax has denied allegations from Dr. Vanessa Tyson who said that he forced her to commit a sexual act in 2004 at the Democratic National Convention.
